K-6 Science Curriculum

In an effort to provide equitable science education across the district, Santa Fe Public Schools is partnered with the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Foundation's Inquiry Science Education Consortium (ISEC) Program to provide kits, professional development and coaching to support teachers K-6.  These kits are based on the Next Generation Science Standards and are distributed throughout the district on a rotating schedule.  This program promotes hands-on inquiry lessons, a variety of student discourse strategies and a metacognitive approach for meaningful writing.
